"If you lost your home through foreclosure, start checking your mailbox. Some 46,600 Virginians are eligible to receive a piece of a $25 billion settlement against five major mortgage companies, accused of abusing foreclosure practices.
The Virginia Attorney General's Office started mailing out claim forms Monday. Eligible candidates will receive at least $840. Officials say they don't expect everyone to cash in, so that total will likely rise per recipient."
Some states are starting to distribute some of the mortgage settlement money that the banks paid to buy their way out--I hardly think 840.00 will help anyone replace their home. Joke.
